  1. Things keep happening! We got the prologue for the Dawnshard novella, so we discuss that some, and then it occurred to us that we haven't talked about Words of Brandon in forever. There was even an event in the before-times of February! Also, a bunch of stuff from the livestreams. Next time we'll have more Words of Brandon, too! Our cast today is Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), and Marvin (Paleo). This episode is edited by the lovely Feather, who is just the best. You can get the Dawnshard prologue by simply signing up for Brandon's newsletter: https://www.brandonsanderson.com/#signupform Introduction: 0:00 Dawnshard Discussion: 4:12 WoBs: 18:05 WTCC: 1:32:14 If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/bMAUS5c Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  2. This episode of Shardcast, we are returning to Mirandus and the world of Dark One for more lore and analysis. You can get the ebook of Dark One right now, but hardcovers of it start shipping August 17th. You can get them here. This is our second Dark One podcast, our first one happened at the beginning of July. We anticipated this one would come out a bit earlier, but then stuff kept happening! We hope you enjoy this one. We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), and Danielle (Felcandy).

  3. We wanted to do a "short" episode of us discussing the reveal of the novella that will be out prior to Rhythm of War, Dawnshard! But then we blabbed. We blabbed a lot about a lot of things. Things we know basically nothing about. But now you will also know the nothing we know about Dawnshards and Aimians together. After all, the real Dawnshards are the friends we met along the way. For news and info on Dawnshard, see here: https://www.17thshard.com/news/brandon-news/so-the-novella-is-called-dawnshard-r579/ This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), and Joshua (jofwu). Most importantly this episode was edited by the wonderful FeatherWriter, who just did incredible on this one. This episode also was a giant pain to render, so I think really the Sleepless just didn't want you to hear our totally legit and not ridiculous theories here. Next week we won't have our usual Shardcast, but this Sunday we will have a 5000 subscriber Q&A on our Twitch, https://twitch.tv/17th_shard at 11am Pacific where we will answer your questions! The next Shardcast will be two weeks from today.

  4. If you’re anything like us, you’re pumped for the release of Rhythm of War in a few months. And there's no better way to prepare for it than by rereading all the books! But we’ve already done that about a thousand times. So instead, we’re revisiting our old Shardcast questions. This playlist has been designed to be the perfect refresher to listen to over the next few months. We take you through everything from the major characters and worldbuilding elements to the most esoteric questions still on Roshar. And of course we’ve got plenty of our trademark PedantiCast shenanigans.
  5. This episode of Shardcast is sponsored by Hank Green and his new book, A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor, which comes out July 7th! Go to hankgreen.com for details or get it wherever books are sold! Dark One (book 1) is out and it turns out the graphic novel is really good! Come here for our reactions (spoiler-free) and then we go into detail on some of the in-depth stuff of this universe. It's cool, and there's so much to talk about we'll have another episode on it later! This is the freshest takes you'll get from us since this is literally the first time we were discussing this book! You can get Dark One here: https://store.vaultcomics.com/products/brandon-sandersons-dark-one We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and joining us for the first time is Danielle (FelCandy), who does awesome art herself!

  6. Little did we know that just days after our stream where we discuss which Radiant order we'd be, the official Knights Radiant Quiz came out! In this episode, we discuss the news, a new WoB about a potential new Shard, we talk about our quiz results, then we go through and discuss each Radiant order description! There's some cool new lore, so stick around! Our cast today is Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), and David (Windrunner).

  7. We did a massive, five hour long livestream on Saturday for 17th Shard's tenth anniversary! This is the second part. In this part, we discuss our favorite characters, more fandom moments, Ship It or Rip It, and more! Please note this is also not as edited as usual and is almost exactly what the stream saw, so we apologize for blank space. For this part, we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Alyx (FeatherWriter), Grace (thegatorgirl), Matt (Comatose), and Shannon (Grey).

  9. Died a little bit of laughter! (P.s. if this is known or in the wrong forum, sorry and please let me know )
  10. This episode we're talking about characters and tropes. Let's talk about the dead spouses (mostly wives) and dead parents in the cosmere. Well, dead fathers in non-cosmere works, but hey. We talk about the Lost Lenore trope as well as fridging, and a good bit of poking fun about all the dead wives in Brandon's works. We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Grace (thegatorgirl), Shannon (Grey), and Matt (Comatose). In two weeks we will not have our usual episode. Instead, on Saturday, June 6th, we are going to be celebrating 17th Shard's ten year anniversary. We opened our site on June 4th, 2010! Wow. So to celebrate we are going to do a live Shardcast episode on our Twitch channel ( https://www.twitch.tv/17th_shard ) at 11am Pacific. It will be an extra long time with tons of different cast members. And, if you're a Patreon supporter, you'll be able to submit questions ahead of time for the stream. Don't worry, we'll post the VODs on YouTube and we'll answer questions from chat, too, and do some fun stuff!

  11. You know how we say on Shardcast that we don't need rails? Well turns out we rarely had rails to begin with. Today we are taking a look at our old cosmere theories. And when I say old I mean real old, like from 2008, pre-Hero of Ages. We'll talk about some fandom history on the forums, tell you how we got into the fandom, and mock old our old theories all around. Then at the end we'll give you some advice on how you can theorycraft better. Hopefully you'll enjoy this retrospective, and I imagine eventually we'll do another one of these! If you want a Google doc with our posts so you can read the theories in full, check out here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/10gjOYZtQG8OActlRHaaTstOy0eiS5lLZLBQ5f7ri8d0/edit?usp=sharing And if you want an etiquette guide on how to talk in debates or contentious discussion, check this out, written by Matt: https://www.17thshard.com/forum/topic/89580-best-practices-for-posting-in-debates-or-contentious-conversations/ This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Matt (Comatose), Evgeni (Argent), and David (Windrunner), all fandom old timers!

  12. Well, we are all in quarantine, so we wanted to do some fun nonsense to take our mind off things. So it's time for some more Ship it or Rip it! We ask the real questions here, like "what is kingdom," will Shannon continue her commanding lead from last time, and will Eric be just as terrible at this game as before? Our cast today is Eric (Chaos), Shannon (Grey), Matt (Comatose), Ben (Overlord Jebus) and Grace (thegatorgirl).

  13. This episode, we're talking about the history and cultures of Sel, featuring sharks! Well, somewhat. Today we have the debut of the Shardcaster Benny. What's a Svordishman's favorite weapon? A Svord, of course. Okay, but really, there's a lot of interesting history and lore on Sel, and it'll be pretty cool to see Elantris sequels someday. We have Benny (the Happy Shark), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), Marvin (Paleo), and Joshua (jofwu)!

  14. This episode, we're talking about the Shin! Who are they? They *invaded* Roshar? The Stone Shamans? Well, there's stuff we know, but also even more we don't...

  15. This episode, we discuss our Rhythm of War (now the confirmed title of Stormlight 4) predictions! Or at least, we recap where our characters last were, and go through our hopes for each character one by one. We don't really know what the soul of this book will be. So hopefully you find this one enjoyable? We have Eric (Chaos), Alyx (FeatherWriter), Shannon (Grey), and Matt (Comatose)!

  16. Though I feel like he has been discussed and dissected more then even 7th grade biology class would have, I'm surprised that we haven't gotten a shardcast specifically on Hoid. I mean he may be something of a minor character so far but he does spark Some interest amoung the readership
  17. This episode we are talking about the sapient types of spren, and what we know of their societies and culture! We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and Grace (thegatorgirl). Thanks to Ben for editing this one.

  18. It's time for yet more from the Starsight release, where we actually go a bit faster through the Words of Brandon this time. There's even some actual things related to Skyward and Starsight, whoa! Oh, and don't forget the random destiny tangent we forced Ian to take us on.

  19. Whoa, even though there was no Starsight tour, the release gave us a lot of crazy Words of Brandon. We go deep in the weeds this episode. But first, Eric has to tell everyone about his fiance, and we also discuss an Eshonai reading from Stormlight 4. Oh, and no big deal, Brandon finished the rough draft of Stormlight 4. Exciting stuff this episode! We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), and joining for the first time, Marvin (Paleo)! Our next episode won't be two weeks from today, but it'll be next Friday! Hooray!

  20. It's time for a very loopy and entertaining podcast on the Horneaters. We talk about their origins, their culture, Rock and his mysteries, and more. And it is sometimes a little silly sometimes. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and Shannon (Grey). Shardcast is the premier podcast on Brandon's works, Stormlight Archive, Mistborn, and all of the cosmere, run by the mega-fans at 17th Shard.

  21. Yesterday, State of the Sanderson 2019 came out (read it and vote here: https://www.brandonsanderson.com/state-of-the-sanderson-2019/) and we're here to talk all about it. We discuss the Stormlight 4 Release date and more! We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Grace (thegatorgirl), Joshua (jofwu), and David (Windrunner).

  22. There is a ludicrous amount of stuff to talk about on today's Shardcast. First up, we show off Crafty Games's metal Mistborn dice, which are awesome, then we dig right into the Nalthis Star Chart, which has some... anomalies, you could say. Then we get more of the Stormlight 4 Prologue and confirms what we were thinking last time. Then Harmony, there are so many Words of Brandon from Brandon's trip to Israel and Prague. We get stuff on Dawnshards, Cultivation, avatars, and we get into the weeds. And Rafotory. Obviously. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and David (Windrunner). Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected]
  23. It's time to talk in-depth about maybe the weirdest Shard of Adonalsium: Autonomy, and its Vessel, Bavadin. There sure is a lot to discuss that have huge cosmere implications, from avatars, Trell, Patji, sand mastery, and Taldain. It's crazy! Also crazy but not unexpected: Ben's terrible pronunciation. This episode also contains possibly the most salt-inducing Who's That Cosmere Character yet. Evgeni isn't a sand master, but he sure might be a salt master. This week we have Eric (Chaos)--and you should not doubt his prowess of Shard intents; Evgeni (Argent), salt master; Grace (thegatorgirl), the quiet one; and Ben (Overlord Jebus) the First Germ.

Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected] This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Ben (Overlord Jebus), Evgeni (Argent), and Joshua (jofwu). Thanks to Ben for editing this one!
  25. White Sand Volume 3 is out, and so it's time for our last White Sand podcast for a long time. Will it be as salty as our White Sand 1 and 2 podcasts? Well... actually, things end on a reasonably high note! We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), and David (Windrunner). Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected]!
